The Town of Bridgewater has purchased a two acre parcel of land from the Bridgewater Congregational Church. The property was formerly used as a parking lot for church functions. It will now be expanded, re-graded and paved to serve as a municipal parking lot. The $50,000 cost and additional funds needed for improvements and a sidewalk to the corner of Center Street will be reimbursed almost entirely by a grant secured from the Connecticut Local Capital Improvement, or LOCIP, Fund. There are plans to establish a walking path through the new town property to an area behind Town Hall.
